• The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has urged candidates to dispel their fears and embrace the Computer Based Test (CBT) policy as it would help restore glory to the country’s education system.

    JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Mr Fabian Benjamin, who made this disclosure in Abuja, said: “Education in Nigeria used to be the best competing with other countries globally; with CBT now we have been able to curb exam malpractice.

    “And once exam malpractice is not there our education will be on a sound footing; as far as CBT is concerned, I don’t think we had any challenge last year.

    “The only challenge was the issue of the phobia by Nigerians over the CBT, but we have been able to overcome that and they are beginning to see that this is not as complex as they thought.

    “We are getting very impressive responses from the candidates, from parents and from other stakeholders; so by the grace of God this exam is going to be a huge success.

    “We are working with security agencies and they have been giving us assurances; moreover, our examination is after the elections.

    “We believe that before we start, the elections would have come and gone. The CBT examination is not a one-day examination; it is beginning on March 4th, and it will stretch for two weeks.

    He said CBT was introduced by JAMB in 2013 to address the issue of release of incomplete result and missing scripts of exam candidates.

    He gave the assurance that the use of the CBT policy of the board in administering public examinations would help place Nigeria’s education system on the same pedestal obtainable in any part of the world. (NAN)
